This book is dedicated to my daughter Rebekah. You have been the light of my life for the past 23 years. I am proud of the young woman you have become. You are smart, beautiful and talented; with a heart too big for your own good. Follow your dreams! You are capable of

anything you set your heart on. I’m so glad God gave you to me.

I love you!!


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Thank you Clara, for the beautiful beach photo featured on the cover of this book. You are a very creative and talented photographer.

Thank you to Lily, Megan, and Natalie for the inspiration you provided. I’m so thankful for my girls. I love you all and am proud of each and every one of you. I am blessed by your love, creative personalities, and energetic enjoyment of life.

I would also like to thank my husband (my very own Prince Charming), who washed and dried countless loads of laundry, supplied dinner (you notice I didn’t say cooked), and generally took care of everything… while I typed, and typed, and typed. I Love you!

To my parents…your love and support have been the catalyst behind us all. Thank you for continuing to love and guide us through the many

twists and turns of our lives. Thank you for being the best parents in the world!

Thank you to other friends and family members (who shall remain nameless), for the colorful inspiration you continue to provide.

To those we have lost…you are missed.

Mrs. Linda Welch - teacher, mentor, editor, friend. If all English teachers could be like you, the World would have more authors in it today. You always expected the best from your students and patiently worked with us until we succeeded. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for wielding that red pen twenty-some odd years ago… (OK, maybe closer to thirty)… and for removing a million commas from this manuscript!!

Katherine Land-- Cover Artist Queen! Thank you for taking a beautiful photo and making it so much more. Your intuitiveness, talent, and artistic abilities are amazing. Great job Kate!
